RCGB Community Service Projects This is your opportunity to participate in a "hands on" Rotary Project.

THE PROJECT: Cook a meal for 8 at Ronald McDonald House

WHY DO IT: So you think you had a tough day at work? Imagine a preemie baby or perhaps twins, tiny as a puff of wind, (3-5lbs) but needing to be fed almost constantly. You worry whenever they are out of your sight and you have weeks if not months ahead on this routine. Catch a meal, maybe a little sleep then back to the hospital You are exhausted daily.

Ronald McDonald House needs community members willing to cook a meal. They have much of the fixings right there. Canned goods, a huge pantry of canned and packaged goods along with ground beef, pork, and sausage. The sign up sheet show current open dates in May (subject to change as filled). If interested just SIGN UP HERE and Tom will contact you confirm the date you signed-up for is still open.

RMH Offers parents of preemie an absolutely free place to stay as long as they need to, while their child is in the hospital. The longest stay so far is 114 nights. In fact they offer this service to anyone who has a child under 22 who is staying at St Charles Hospital.
